Gain a conceptual understanding of the NGSS with application in the classroom with STEM implementation in the classroom as a solution to the shifts with NGSS. Examples will include Pearson’s Project STEM for grades K–8 that provides research-based materials that make it easy for teachers to integrate STEM seamlessly into existing curricula and instruction. Through 18 topics and accompanying program guides, Project STEM works with any elementary or middle grades science program. Each module follows the same format: Introduce, Teach, and Evaluate. Topics cover Life, Earth, and Physical sciences and illustrate how the four STEM areas are connected through hands-on labs, projects, and background materials.
